Hoyas should take swing at Mike Brey

The Notre Dame coach would be a home-run hire for Georgetown. The native of nearby Bethesda, Maryland has plenty of experience in the region.

Bonzie Colson could be a first rounder

ACC proves it was overrated

All season the ACC was widely considered the best league in the nation. It got nine teams into the NCAA tournament. Well, eight of them are gone now. So what does that tell you?

WVU never allowed Notre Dame to get into a rhythm (0:52)

ESPN Stats and Information  

Notre Dame's top-two scorers put together completely opposite performances in the NCAA tournament. While Bonzie Colson averaged an efficient 22.5 PPG, V.J. Beachem struggled from the field, shooting just 3-for-23 in two games.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Notre Dame did well to defend against 3-point shots all season long, but couldn't contain West Virginia's shooters in NCAA tournament. The Mountaineers shot a season-high 57.1 percent from behind the arc on Saturday.

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

Notre Dame made 10 3-pointers, but the Irish didn't look prepared for the West Virginia defense inside the arc. ND connected on just 36 percent of its 2s, and Jevon Carter rung up 24 points for the Mountaineers. That was more than enough to send WVU to the Sweet 16 for the third time under Bob Huggins.

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

When I polled coaches earlier in the season, Huggins and West Virginia were the team that most didn't want to play in March -- especially on short turn like this. So difficult to prepare for this defensive pressure.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Fresh off surviving Thursday's scare from Princeton, ESPN's BPI only gives Notre Dame a third of a chance Saturday to beat No. 4 seed West Virginia, which held Bucknell to under a point per possession when applying its vaunted "Press Virginia" defense.

Brey hopes Irish fans make it to game after St. Patrick's Day (0:28)

ESPN Stats and Information  

Notre Dame edged Princeton despite shooting 40.4 percent from the floor, going only 4-for-11 behind the arc and 14-for-21 from the free-throw line

Notre Dame wins after thrilling sequence (0:37)

ESPN Stats and Information  

Notre Dame improved its record to 5-1 in games decided by five points or fewer in the last 3 NCAA Tournaments.

Notre Dame holds off Princeton 60-58 in first NCAA tournament game to go final. The Wynn Theater, where I'm watching the early games, went nuts as Princeton missed a potential game-winning 3-pointer in the closing seconds as a popular No. 12 seed trying to pull off a 12-5 upset. The ViewFromVegas is Princeton point-spread backers did cover as 6.5-point underdogs and the game stayed under the betting total of 134.

Eamonn Brennan ESPN Staff Writer 

Notre Dame ran the same post set for Bonzie Colson three times in a row. Took Princeton three times to keep Colson from a catch. Not hard to guess which of the three yielded a stop.

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

Not sure which is the bigger surprise: Princeton scoring just 0.92 points per possession, or Notre Dame making just six of its first 10 free throws. Strange events do occur in the NCAA tournament.

Notre Dame closes as a consensus 6-point favorite in Las Vegas against Princeton.

Thursday viewers' guide: Princeton-Notre Dame

The very first game of the day has classic No. 5 vs. No. 12 upset potential. But Notre Dame's Bonzie Colson, among our players to watch, might have something to say about that.
